Comment #: NY7463
Most unfair judge when it comes to foreclosure cases, will use any factor, relevant or not, to use agains the borrower. Very frequent with "interim" orders after the motion is fully submitted, in attempt to default defendants.

so far, in 30 years he ranks as one of my top 5 trial experiences - very fair.

He is a nice guy. Very pleasant to try a case before him. He is even handed. Lets everyone try their case, without undue pressure. Flip side is that he will allow even some arguments that really should be shut down at the get go. However, would much rather have that then not being able to try my case.
